As a girl who grew up in small town Nebraska, college has always been a scary thought. That’s likely what caused me to go to Wayne State my freshman year, but I knew I wasn’t going to stay there. I believe it was predetermined that I would always go to UNL, so off I went to the city panicked about driving in one lane traffic.
Then, I got to Lincoln. The more and more time I spent here, learning to drive downtown, making friends, and learning about this way of living life, I realized Lincoln isn’t a city at all. It’s just the biggest most spread out small town in Nebraska.
That’s why I feel so at home here, so if you ever get the chance to visit my home, I’ve created a list of can’t miss mostly free things you should probably do.
-visit pioneers park
-find the graffitied railroad bridge by densmore park
-hot tub on the roof at 8N lofts
-pool party at lat
-watch a show at The Alley
-celebrate football season in the bottoms
-visit the zoo (my friends dad owns it. It has cheetahs)
-go to a husker game
-go to the antique stores
-check out all the foreign grocery stores
-obviously stop at a pet store, I recommend pet doctor.
-eat at the Chinese place between little ceasers pizza and heartland urgent care on 27th
-find the park with the manmade waterfall thing
-cruise down Sheridan boulevard
So yeah. Get on that.
